11:04 pm

11:05 pm
to a sellout crowd giving them a standing ovation, and the players told me that was one of the classiest things they ever experienced in their careers. reporting live at the coliseum, kate long worth, nbc bay area news. >> they certainly deserved it, that's for sure. it was a bummer night for a's fans, giants fans are celebrating all day. even at some inopportune moments. that's nancy pelosi, when she puts her arms up, and gives the final score of the giants game. she's not the only fan. we'll have more for you in sports. the a's battled to keep their postseason hopes alive, joe biden battled paul ryan. to keep president obama's hopes alive. the vice presidential debate, everything the obama romney matchup wasn't. it was fiery, animated and a good old fashioned political
11:06 pm
brawl. we have team coverage for you tonight. steve handlesman shows us the best of the debates. some fans tried to juggle both of those events. >> we did a pretty good job with election day less than one month away. some a's fans made watching that debate a priority. tuning in to that spirited exchange while monitoring the score. a's fans cheered on the big game. fans could also tune in to the vice presidential debate. >> it's cool, i can't hear it, though. >> my eyes are going back and forth. so many tv's here. >> he plans to watch joe biden and paul ryan later. >> over at the white hills in oakland, the family is watching baseball and politics. >> we wanted to watch both the debate and the ball game, we love the a's, and it's so season to be in the postseason, the

11:08 pm
debate game live, it was feisty and informative. was it a game changer? the fireworks from danville, kentucky tonight. >> they differ sharply on all the big issues, these are both smart well informed politicians. paul ryan and joe biden might both be happy with how that came across tonight. >> a long time democratic insider versus a republican young gun whose ticket has new momentum. mitt romney was watching, barack obama too. martha raddich with abc. >> it's because the president has no credibility on this issue. >> we will not allow the iranians to get a nuclear weapon. you're going to go to war, is that what you want to do? >> we want to prevent war. >> what about mitt romney saying 47% of americans feel entitled to government benefits. >> i think the vice president
11:09 pm
very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> i always say what i mean. >> what about the obama stimulus. the recovery. job growth in september was slower than it was in august, and august was slower than it was in july. we're heading in the wrong direction. >> 5.2 million new private sector jobs. >> was it a good idea to spend taxpayer dollars on electric cars in finland or wind mills in china? >> this is what we needed to stop us from going off the cliff. >> can a middle class tax hike be prevented? >> it's not math matticly possible. >> it is. it's been done before. it's precisely what we're proposing. >> biden smiled a lot. ryan a debate rookie kept his cool. >> did ryan add to the romney momentum or did biden get the

11:11 pm
11:12 pm
she disappeared 24 years ago, her parents have been looking for her ever since. tonight the parents are hoping to find out answers about their daughter who vanished when she was just nine. and they want to know, sadly, if she was the victim of the speed freak serial killers. investigators say dna testing is being done on a bone fragment pulled from the lyndon well back in february, to see if it belongs to the heyward girl. they say the fragment belongs to a child between the ages of 5 and 14. that determination may never
11:13 pm
have been made if it wasn't for the family of the child who's remains were identified. the mother decided to have the bone fragments retested. they were mixed with the remains of at least three other people. >> what mrs. shelly wants is to be certain that if any other family members loved ones were contained with her daughter in the well, she wants to be certain that they have their child back. >> if she's been there, if this is mikayla, they were it breaks my heart that she's laying in that place for all this time. >> it's going to be a painful way for mikayla's mother. the results of the dna test could take several weeks. the price of a college education is daunting. we're talking about classes, books, tuition costs. many students have financial aide, but even that comes at a cost.
11:14 pm
stephanie troung is here with more. >> it sounds counter intuitive, that students who apply for financial aide are the ones who need the help most to get by. many banks charge debit card fees for students to get their financial aide money. we're taken a look at one company who is the biggest player of its kind in this campus debit card industry. making about $88 million last year on student fees alone. >> the bills keep coming. >> for this father of three, every dollar counts. >> i don't like losing money. >> but this 36-year-old is losing money from an unlikely place. the debit card he uses to access his own financial aide money. they felt it was their only option. >> we don't have another choice. that's how we get our money. >> do you think that's fair? >> no. no, it's not. >> traditionally, financial aide money was season the to students
11:15 pm
in the form of a paper check, 100% the school's responsibility and on the school's dime, that's all gone. paper checks were costly. >> in some cases, probably anywhere from $7 to $12 to $15 per check many. >> an expense of roughly $300,000 saved for schools. part of a growing number of campuses nationwide using a middleman to take care of getting the cash to students in the form of debit cards from banks and financial firms. like higher one. >> we were saving a lot of money by going to this. while still servicing the students and getting their money to them faster. >> the convenience factor for students is a reason why the schools are using higher one. >> it's the one and only option. >> what's problem? >> one of eight of students in the united states who receives
11:16 pm
federal aide receives it through higher one. >> consumer advocate john fox is with cal perks. higher one made $88 million last year just on fees incurred on the debit cards. there are more than 100 california schools using higher one, 15 of them in the bay area. the most prevalent charges include 50 cents every time a student swipes with a pin at a merchant. and a minimum $2.50 for using a nonhigher one atm plus whatever fee that atm charges. this is the only atm serving 11,000 students, who say thend up using this, forced to use a nonhigher atm and pay fees. >> they're going to give you no choice but to add to their profit. >> this is federal aide we're
11:17 pm
talking about, federal taxpayer money. >> students are not required to open up a higher one account to receive their financial aide. if they open an account with higher one, there are absolutely no hidden fees. our charges are competitive with national and regional banks around the country and students are required to read the pop-up disclosure of the fee schedule before they are permitted to open an account. all the information is up front and no nonsense. higher one also says the deposit into a personal bank account can happen as fast as 24 to 48 hours, students told nbc bay area it took much longer. >> it was about five days difference if i remember correctly. >> it a wait he just couldn't afford. in august, the federal deposit insurance corporation announced it had settled with higher one after accusing the company of deceptive and unfair practices for excessively charging students if they had overdrawn
11:18 pm
their funds. higher one agreed to pay back $11 million to about 60,000 students. the fdic also fined the company $110,000. higher one says such a small penalty delineates its cooperation and the charges. critics argue higher one is just a small slice of a bigger not so pretty picture. >> there are other players that do similar or worse practices than higher one, we really want to see the whole area being more regulated. >> school administrators say they're teaching their students to be responsible and financially literal. >> we feel we're training students towards the future. >> students would prefer to skip that lessen. >> it doesn't seem morally correct. >> especially since he's taking out loans and paying interest on them to go to school and support his three children. >> they're making money off of what i pay interest on. do they need to make that much
11:19 pm
money? >> higher one is not the only company out there charging fees. it's such a growing issue, they issued a statement to students this fall. >> thank you, stephanie. fall is definitely here, dreary outside. i hear changes could be on the way. let's check out with jeff ranieri. >> we have dramatic changes in the 7-day forecast. the system is finally starting to kick off to the south. the good news it's taking some of the heavier rainfall we had well off to the south as well. gilroy picking up the highest totals, nearly an inch there. menlo park at 1300. san jose coming in at 900. we have dry conditions from the north bay all the way down to the south bay. but we still can't even rule out a little drizzle here as we continue through tonight.
11:20 pm
the big story at this hour, the current temperatures in the 50s in santa rosa, also in livermore and san jose. even close to some 40s, not quite there yet. los gatos close to 50 degrees. let's get a look right now, you'll be able to find they got a dusting here, anywhere from 2 to 4 inches, not enough to open, but get those skis ready, if this latest weather this week is an indication of what's coming our way, it could be a wild ride here this fall and winter. back in san francisco, not cold enough for snow, but definitely, the temperatures dropping in low level moisture, we will have some of that fog developing at the coastline. let's get you into the next 48 hours. we have a system we were tracking the next couple days, finally moving off to the south. and here comes another storm system, it looks impressive on the satellite loop. as this continues to get closer, we're going to find this breaking apart. no heavy rainfall with this one here as we head throughout friday and saturday. it's going to continue to beef
11:21 pm
up that fog, right up against the coastline, temperatures from the 50s to 60s from about bodega bay all the way down to pacifica. it kicked up the wind and we'll find a 35% chance of shower. nothing major expected to come our way. for tomorrow morning, you're getting up early, around 7:00 a.m., widespread low cloud cover, not even for the coastline, back in the interior valleys, down into the south bay, as we head throughout the afternoon, we do expect a little bit more sunshine than we had for today. more of a filtered sunshine situation, it's going to look at least a little better, as we head throughout saturday morning. we're going to find a few showers approach into the north bay. as for tonight, we talked about the cold, look at this, temperatures drop into the 40s in san jose, 48 in gilroy, 48 in santa rosa, 50 in oakland. one of the coldest temperatures could be on the grapevines in napa with 46 degrees. decent rebound for friday, with temperatures going slightly warmer, with the anticipated sunshine by the afternoon.
